BHVA’s mission, to inspire, create and celebrate, is what drives us to provide a community-based arts hub, where all members of society have access to high quality arts provision. We do this by providing a safe, nurturing, creative and all-inclusive atmosphere where innovative teaching practices support individuals’ personal and artistic goals.
We have created an arts provision that celebrates all successes at the heart of every community. A place that high quality teaching and coaching can be found to inspire and nurture life-long skills to help you achieve the best you can be, in whatever you want to do in life. We use arts to have a positive impact on the whole person and the whole community, by allowing people to find the joy in their life.
At BHVA we strive to empower all who walk through our doors, whether you are taking up an art form for the first time, or are wanting to improve your performance, or are looking to develop your teaching pedagogy. We do this by providing a nurturing, creative and all-inclusive atmosphere, with innovative teaching practices to promote student’s personal and artistic growth and celebrate all successes.
Our core values underpin all the work that we do. Through our research-based tuition we aim to inspire all our students to find their own creative signature. Our trained staff utilise mentoring and coaching knowledge to nurture students, building confidence in all elements of their creative journey. All our programmes are supported by up-to-date research and training to ensure only the highest quality of provision is offered. Creativity is what drives us in our approach to use Arts Education to break down barriers and to discover the unique creativity each member of BHVA has to offer. Finally, the most important of all, we celebrate every success, no matter the size, to ensure that anyone who engages and work with BHVA finds moments of joy both in themselves and within their artistic journey.
"Online Sing Squad is a ray of sunshine in these unprecedented times. Beccy’s upbeat spirit and positive attitude makes the session really fun and a great focus for my daughter. We’re already looking forward to our next session!"
"I’ve been enjoying Harmonix from the beginning. It’s a great place to have a good sing, be a bit silly and learn all in one place! In these strange and unusual times, I was beginning to miss friends and normality. Thankfully, Beccy was quick to move sessions online and for a few hours on a Sunday evening we can escape. It’s a great way to manage stress and anxiety too and welcome more than ever!"
"Having Beccy teach me is the highlight of my week. My voice is being pushed in all the right places and I am being given the confidence to do things I didn’t think I could. I cannot recommend this lovely lady enough offering her magic and vast knowledge to all ages!"
"Knowing my child can learn to sing with someone like Beccy is really exciting. Not only is she an amazing and experienced musician and teacher, but she cares about good vocal health which is something I think is hugely important – especially in children."
"Beccy Hurrell is a dedicated teacher who is deeply committed to learning new techniques and strategies for teaching. She is committed to education and is passionate about access to education. Her students quite rightly adore her as she is warm, empathetic and nurturing."
"Beccy is such a great role model for young women. She is a fantastic teacher and academic. Would highly recommend!"
"We have been so pleased to see the progress our daughter has made with Beccy and the variety of techniques that she uses. To see how her confidence has grown where she is able to question and discuss with Beccy about how she feels on certain exercises and how she will embrace those that also fall outside her comfort zone. It is a real partnership in every sense and the learning book used each week is a fantastic tool that makes the student take time to reflect on their week and practice."
